Daniela Ruah recently celebrated her mother’s birthday and shared a heartwarming photo on Instagram. The snapshot captured the mother-daughter duo taking a selfie in front of a pier. Daniela sported a rust-colored shirt and a color-blocked cardigan, while her mother, Caterina, looked lovely in a forest green velour top paired with a matching sunhat.

Expressing her gratitude, Caterina responded with a heartfelt message, saying, “Many thanks! I love you to infinity and beyond.” Fans flooded the comments with the Spanish adjective “linda,” meaning “beautiful,” to describe Caterina.

Known for keeping her personal life private, Daniela recently traveled to Portugal with her husband, David Paul Olsen, who happens to be the brother of her NCIS co-star Eric Christian Olsen. Their family trip included exploration of beautiful beaches, centuries-old districts, and even a culinary class to master the art of making Pastéis de Nata (custard tarts), one of Portugal’s traditional desserts. Daniela shared a video montage capturing their memorable experiences and expressed her fondness for Portugal upon their return.

In addition to her personal adventures, Daniela, along with her fellow NCIS stars, has actively participated in the ongoing SAG-AFTRA actors’ strike. They have joined picket lines to advocate for fair pay and improved treatment in the entertainment industry.

Brian Dietzen, who portrays Jimmy Palmer in the NCIS franchise, has also shown his support for the strike. He underscored the significance of union protections, especially in securing residual payments crucial for essential medical coverage for him and his wife. Brian expressed his love for his colleagues and the pride he feels in standing by them during the strike, emphasizing their eagerness to return to the stage once a fair agreement is reached.
